Published July 25, 2008 in the "Norman Transcript".
June Stone, a member of the Oklahoma Genealogical Society (OGS), is
requesting our help in gathering information about Oklahoma World War I
veterans. OGS is planning to publish an index to honor these veterans and
June is a member of the board and serving on the committee for this project.
There are some lists, by county, that are available at the Oklahoma
Historical Society Library. The Department of Veterans Affairs has a list of
those who were killed in action but does not have a list of all those who
served and the American Legion Department of Oklahoma does not have a list.
Requested information includes full name of veteran, date and place of
birth, date and place of death, date and place of marriage, name of spouse,
names of parents, rank, branch of service, medals earned, obituary, pictures
and anything that would contribute to the veteran's file.
June did not ask for this information, but I think the place of burial
should be included.
To contribute to this project send information to: June Stone, 3601 NW 19th
Street, Oklahoma City, OK 73107-2815, by e-mail to JuneCStone@aol.com or fax
